Do you relate any particular lipstick with any special outfit or occasion? For me L'oreal Color Riche lipstick Milla Purple is one such lipstick, its the exact shade of my Wedding Reception saree and everytime I wear this lippie it reminds me of some incredibly happy times!

Milla Purple is part of L'oreal's Color Riche Star Secrets range,inspired by Milla Jovovich.A gorgeous berry shade which goes on smooth and creamy and leaves a hint of moist sheen on the lips.

L'oreal says about their Star Secrets range "Inspired by our most beautiful female ambassadors, L’OrĂ©al Paris presents the Color Riche Star Secrets collection. Each shade has been developed to embody the character and spirit of each model, using the expertise of international make-up artist James Kaliardos

Color Riche is enriched with a combination of Omega-3 oils and Vitamin E and helps to protect your lips from drying. It has a soft, creamy texture and it leaves lips feeling moisturized, smooth with a stunning finish."


L'oreal star secret lippies which have seen their heyday in USA are still going strong in India.

The packaging is chic black with the star's signature in this case Milla jovovich, the gold tube also looks nice.When these ones were launched in India (ages back!) the packaging looked definitely it looks a tad dated.

The shade- I love the shade, its a beautiful berry shade, in between plum and purple color.In single swipe you get a light berry glaze and in two swipes the color is nice and opaque and nicely covers any lip pigmentation.The color pay off is very good, it lasts for good 4 hours on my lips without touch ups and doesn't bleed or feather. The lipstick is also moisturizing,so I can skip lip balm while wearing this.The lipstick even after fading leaves a beautiful tint on the lips.

The lipstick has a typical L'oreal lippie smell, something vanilla/syrup kind of fragrance, though I'm very sensitive to fragrant lippies, this one doesn't bother me. But I know many ladies don't prefer L'oreal lipstick smell, so I'd suggest let your nose be the best judge for it.

Priced at INR 720 for 4.7 grams this is a great lippie. Though I picked it up when it cost  much lesser, its still a great buy,simply because the shade is gorgeous,very versatile and goes on with a whole bunch of outfits and occasions.. 
Hmmm.. I'm almost finishing my tube, what do you guys think, should I re-purchase?
